Im sorry to jump into this discussion uninvited, but I also have
extensive experience using the Miltenyi system. If you are using the
Dynabead magnet, that wont work with the miltenyi column system. The
vario MACS system sells for approx 5K. 

Purity after either depletion or positive enrichment is truly

While recovery is not 100%, I doubt you will find a system that reaches
the level that Miltenyi is able to achieve (That includes FACS sorting)

my 2 cents
